Attendance at Siddha Yoga Venues

Siddha Yoga Foundation Policy for
Attendance at a Siddha Yoga Venue in Australia

Siddha Yogis and new seekers are welcome to Siddha Yoga venues, to chant and meditate and offer seva in a safe and secure environment. Siddha Yoga venues are sacred spaces where the teachings of the Siddha Yoga path are practised, and Ashram Dharma is followed. The Siddha Yoga Foundation has a responsibility to provide a safe environment in all its venues around the country and a duty of care under Work, Health and Safety laws to protect the health and well-being of staff, volunteers/sevites and visitors. The Foundation adopts a cautious approach to these responsibilities whilst aiming to be as inclusive as possible. 

The principles for all venues in Australia are:

1. Minimise the risk of transmission of infectious diseases.

a. Everyone agrees that, if they feel unwell, or have tested positive for COVID-19 in the last 7 days, they will not attend a Siddha Yoga venue.

b. Mask wearing is optional.

2. Everyone is welcome to attend venues and does so voluntarily based on their own risk assessment. 

3.  By entering a Siddha Yoga venue, everyone agrees to respect the sacred space and the wellbeing of other people there. 

Agreements for some venues, such as those in private homes,  may have conditions additional to those below.


By attending an event, whether or not you register in advance, you are agreeing to the following terms and conditions of entry:

  • I will respect the sacred space and the wellbeing of other people attending. 
  • I am NOT feeling unwell and I have not tested positive for COVID-19 in the last 7 days.
  • I will follow the Child-safe and Work Health & Safety guidelines put in place to provide a safe and inclusive environment for people of all ages.
